This report concludes the work conducted by the Hydrodynamics Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology under Contract N6onr-44, Task II, in the general field of hydraulic machinery. This work was initiated in January 1947 under the initial guidance of Professors Knapp and Hollander. It has subsequently been continued by additional amendments to the original contract up to the present. The over-all objectives of this program were to make detailed observations and measurements of the internal flow in rotating impellers and stationary diffusors to permit the establishment of accurate design procedures for hydraulic machinery, and to serve as a starting point for realistic mathematical analysis of such flows. It is the intention of this report to indicate the scope of the work done under this contract and to describe the facilities built for its experimental end. A further aim is to outline, in brief, the reports and publications issued and some incidental benefits derived from this project.
